Policy makers are continuously emphasizing upon devising a strategy that can offload the burden on farm sector by reducing disguised unemployment and also ensure sustained increased earnings of the remaining farmers. Agro-industries in general and food processing industries in particular are expected to play a catalytic role at this juncture.
